A tenant at The Fremantle Trust’s supported living service in Bedford pulled out all the stops to help celebrate the care provider’s 25th anniversary with a black tie ball.
Zoe Blundell, who has lived at the Trust’s Coventry Road site since 2013, was keen to play her part in organising a party to remember, which saw 50 guests attend from the Trust’s Bedfordshire-based supported living and residential learning disability services.
The event took place at Oakley Village Hall on Church Lane, which was decorated for the occasion by fellow tenants and team members from the service. Zoe not only helped to plan all the logistics for the ball, but sourced around 30 raffle prizes from local businesses who showed their support for the Trust.
Caroline Earey, a manager at The Fremantle Trust’s residential services in Bedford, said:
“We wanted to ensure we supported our tenants to enable them to play a key role in deciding how to mark our 25th anniversary and Zoe came forward with lots of ideas and enthusiasm. She clearly has a real flair for event planning and worked hard to liaise with local businesses and encourage them to get involved with our raffle.”
“I wanted to make it a really special night and an opportunity for people to dress up and have a great time. We put a lot of work into organising the ball so it was brilliant to see everyone enjoying it so much!”
